While an individual may not give it credit, there is a strong role of a well nourished and healthy body in our day to day lives. It is nothing less than an asset to our lives when it allows us to function continuously through the day and carry out tasks and operations (Kracht & Schulz). The health of our bodies dictates the health of our minds and allows our cognitive abilities to function at a level where we can comprehend, evaluate and make decisions based on logic and rationale. The necessity of proper nourishment in the development of a healthy body and a sound mind is undeniable and a person cannot be expected to carry out even the most regular of everyday tasks with effectiveness and efficiency if the individual’s mind and body are not healthy. The significance of a healthy mind and body in the case of a person eventually translates into the significance of a healthy individual to a society when the same aspects are perceived in a broader picture (Duttaroy). Every society has the right to develop, grow and increase its standard of living and in this case, it will be next to impossible for a society to develop effectively and efficiently unless the people constituting the society are healthy. In order to ensure that they are healthy, the presence of proper nutrition comes forth as one that is undeniably important (Kirkpatrick, Clarke, & Polidano, 2002).
